It's Blog Candy time!

To celebrate one year on the web I have some nice blog candy to give away. This package includes a gorgeous new clear set from Inkadinkado with the most beautiful hearts and flowers! I then found this gorgeous new paper from Making Memories called Sabrina. It's perfect for all those Valentines I know you will be making! The patterns in the 6x6 pad are slightly distressed and so pretty!
The matching buttons are gorgeous...you can see them better in the close up. I finished it up with some matching pink ribbon.

Over the last year since I began blogging I have made so many friends and I have learned so much! There is such a world of talent and information that I feel fortunate to be a part of. So much sharing of knowledge, products, and pure talent...not to mention the comraderie!

To win this blog candy just leave me a comment telling me what you like best about blogging, reading or posting or both. The deadline to enter is 8:00 pm est. this Thursday. I will draw a name on Thurday and announce the winner on Friday morning-start someone's weekend off with a little bang!

Thank you to all my followers, regulars, and those who may just pop in to read once in a while...I appreciate everyone who has made comments and left words of encouragement which has gotten me to this place today. Have a great day!!

I love the blog candy package you've put together! My favorite part of bloggin/reading blogs is the inspiration that is shared. Everyone is so friendly and willing to share ideas, sketches, etc that it helps me hone this craft of stamping! I appreciate all the time blogging stampers put into their work :)

Thanks for sharing!

I am new in stamping, but I have always loved the craft. Tried to stay away for many many years, but finally have surcomed to the temptation to put stamp to ink! I love reading all the different blogs and seeing how and what people are doing. Somtimes the cards that people make just simply amaze me!!! I hope to be just as good.

I don't have a blog but I love reading and seeing everyone's creation. I think it is amazing that so many people are so committed to sharing their talent. I always hit your blog to see the color throw down and then scroll through to see what you've been up to since the last one! Congrats on one year!

mamichelle said...

Oooh, I just found your blog today from Color Throwdown. Love your cards!

I love blogging but mostly reading (or should I say looking) at blogs of talented women like you! I don't like posting my projects as much because I'm not that confident. I have met a bunch of wonderful people through my blog though.

kim evans said...

Thanks so much for the Color Throw Down challenge!! I'm new to challenges and love how - after many years of stamping - they make me step outside the box. That's ONE thing I love about blogging. Most of all, it's the friends I've made. You never know how just one kind comment can make someone's day. I look forward to comments on my blog every day! I hope I have made someone happy in return.

I like all aspects of blogging...posting and reading other blogs...

Awesome blog candy. Congratulations on celebrating 1 year on the web

V said...

I tend to be an inconsistent blogger, although I'm trying to do better. I have always loved writing, so blogging is just another creative outlet. I love the whole process of writing out the blog and adding in pictures. Now if I only had enough minutes in the day to do it more consistently!

I only found your blog a couple of weeks ago, but I have enjoyed reading it, new and old post alike!

Kelly said...

Well I would fall under the category as a newbie reader of your blog, but am now a "follower" and will be a regular!!

Congrats Danielle!!

Stephanie said...
